The hostel is located near the fiord. Rooms are very clean. The shared kitchen is well equipped. There is a place to eat indoor and outdoor. This hostel belongs to HI (Hostel International ) and maintains the high standard of this network of hostels

This was a very clean well kept hostel in a beautiful area. The drive to this area had stunning views around every fjord that we passed, although the road is a little bumpy. The owner was very accommodating when we had a change our schedule with short notice due to weather. Would recommend staying here if travelling to Bíldudalur.

This hostel is operated by a young and energetic couple. These folks have evidently put much thought in creating a layout that is most convenient for Hostel goers. The interior is like brand new. I had Good Wifi. The kitchen is outstanding! Lots of dining space - great TV/sitting area, all with lots of windows. I spent 2 nights, one... More

Don't judge this place by the cover - it's a really modern, clean and warm hostel with great kitchen, dining and sitting areas. The bunk beds are also surprisingly sturdy. Usually they're made of metal and squeak when you move so you wake people up, but these ones are solid wood and put together properly - nothing moves when you... More

This hostel looks a bit old from the outside, but is modern, spacious and clean at the inside. It took some effort before the helpful lady of the hostel appeared at the hostel, but this is not really a problem when you made a reservation: you can sit inside while you're waiting and in the meantime use the wifi. And... More

KEX in Reykjavík might be livelier for the international backpacking crowd, but this hostel is very nice. Well kept, very friendly staff, optional breakfast, quick laundry/drying service, small dorms with comfortable beds - what more can you ask for!

Very well managed, well furnished hostel in sheltered fjord. Large spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed. Set on the harbour and conveniently situated close to a cafe which served a variety of basic but well cooked evening meals if you prefer not to cook you own. Breakfast was more than adequate, but not as good as the others we had... More

When I hear the word hostel I imagine rooms packed full of rowdy students and backpacks, the aroma of weed and grubby bathrooms. It might have been the time of our visit (late August) or the fact that Bildudalur is a remote village in the north-western fjords but the place was almost empty, very clean, with comfortable beds and right...

We spent one night in this hostel in a shared but spacious room. The location (right next to the harbor) is quite nice and there is a small but lovely restaurant close by where we had excellent burgers. The hostel itself is quite simple but it's a nice place to stop for a night before exploring the rest of the... More
